COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hoppy, farmhouse style ale has a champagne like effervescence with a crisp but light on the tongue finish. Similar to the Belgian Saison style , this beer serves well as an aperitif. Hennepin has a majestic golden hue. The style is called Grisette or farm house and is considered to be in the domain of the Belgian Saisons.

I am quite suprised that this beer isnít rated much higher than it is. Gorgeous lacing in the glass. NIce pale straw yellow with a thick head. A little bit of Belgian spiciness in the nose but some hops there too. Evervescent and lots of intricate flavors. Some maltiness capitalized and accentuated by the sugar-sweet tastiness. Hops are present. Well-balanced and beautiful.

From Umami Burger in New York Large white head with a golden head. I think the smell is a bit better than the taste thanks to the extra caramel/sweetness. Quite hoppy. Super refreshing with some orange and a kick of spices but nothing overwhelms. Quite bitter at the end but very refreshing and there is a bit of sweetness to balance out it. Not taste of alcohol. Excellent Saison

On tap, Barley and Grain upper west side. Pours hazy lemon color white head. Aroma is lemon, pepper, coriander, spice, slight clove, Belgian yeast. Definitely an American take on the style. Flavor is good mix of farmhouse style funk, and a drier version. Very nice. Again, lemon, pepper, coriander, esters, Belgian spices, clove. Nice.

Beerathon (1491) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2015
This is a lovely representation of the saison style. You get the farmhouse yeast nose and flavors, but also a magnificent effervescence of a Belgian tripel, along with a soft sweetness. Carbonation is spot on and there are some banana and clove notes. Good stuff.

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bomber. Thanks to Justin. Fruity fumes, a touch smokey, mashed peaches, and coriander in the nose. Clear gold straw color. Sharp fruity initial, some deep spicing, alcohol rises up in mid palate, and some light yeast bite and bitterness in finish. Medium body, very smooth. Nice stuff. The fumes and alc flavor do intrude a bit.

Banana, pear, lemon, pepper, coriander and watercress. Light and lively. Very dry with an abrupt finish. A treat today but on a hot, humid day this is a go to thirst crusher.

Interesting beer. This is light beer and has a fresh mix. One of their best that is from the motherhood.
